Western Digital has rolled out new 750GB and 1TB WD RE3 SATA hard drives for enterprises.
Perfect for demanding server and storage application environments, WD's RE3 750 GB and 1 TB high-capacity enterprise SATA hard drives combine 32 MB cache, enhanced vibration and shock tolerance, and deploy new electronics to increase performance approximately 20 percent and by as much 60 percent in high-vibration environments. WD RE3 enterprise hard drives also include improved reliability features that help protect the drive and the data stored on it, and run cooler and quieter than previous generation enterprise drives.
"WD continues to offer enterprise customers the best combination of features, optimum performance, and superior reliability that they have come to expect from WD," said Tom McDorman, vice president and general manager of enterprise storage solutions for WD. "With WD's extensive experience in previous generation enterprise drives, we continue to address opportunities based on our customers positive experiences with WD enterprise hard drives."
WD RE3 drives feature 1.2 million hours mean time between failures (MTBF), native command queuing (NCQ), time limited error recovery (TLER), and an extensive and enhanced testing process to ensure long-term reliability for demanding enterprise applications.
The 1TB and 750GB model are available now for $249 and $199, respectively.
